An update on the story that inspired the hit film Purely Belter. A play about love and friendship, hardship and the priceless currency of hope. It's very funny, very sad and utterly convincing. Everyone needs a Dream: For the lads, Gerry and Sewell, it's watching their beloved Newcastle United play for a whole season. To get into the sacred St James Park where Gazza once graced the field of dreams, Shearer smashed a total of two hundred and six goals, where Kev was King and Sir Bobby was a god, they only need one thing, A Season Ticket. But in a world of payday loans and cash-on-credit, how easy is it to make a cool grand? And is it remotely feasible to sell ?magic pennies' for a pound on the streets of the city? Gerry and Sewell try every trick in the book but find that making money is much more complicated than avoiding school. Or home. A lively, dynamic, grimly funny show. A story of friendship, of family and of course a little bit of football.Performers Joe Caffrey (Terry/Mike/Stephen /Elmo), Victoria Elliott (Dee/Paula/Miss Moon), Will Graham (Sewell), Niek Versteeg (Gerry), Kevin Wathen (Dan/Paul), Laila Zaidi (Gemma/Claire/Shanice).
